Easy Homemade Pico

Do you love pico?

It's one of my very favorite sides for taco night.

I do a variety of things to make taco night feel special - homemade pico, homemade guac, freshly shredded cheese or everyone's favorite toppings.  Pick one of two of those things and taco night will feel like a special dinner.  I promise!

Homemade Pico:
1 cup mini tomatoes diced (these are grape tomatoes) and the juices
1 small diced yellow onion
a little diced purple onion
2 chopped green onions
1 partially seeded fresh jalapeno diced
the zest and juice of one lemon
the zest and juice of one lime
a generous sprinkle of Kinder The Blend Seasoning (salt, pepper & garlic)

Chop everything and combine it in a bowl.  Stir until all the juices are well mixed.  Refrigerate for about an hour and serve with taco night.  We love this as a topping for nachos, tacos or as a dip for chips and dip.  It's so good!!

This recipe is one that is best eaten the same day.  The tomatoes get mushy leftover.

Would your family enjoy this for taco night?  It would be a great Summer appetizer for any cook out!

  1. This looks so good! I am a little spoiled because I buy the pico and guac freshly made at our HEB! But it's more economical to make it at home. So fresh looking!
